PORTRAIT OF AN ATTRACTIVE SERIOUS YOUNG WOMAN IN MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE (CARTE DE VISITE)

This carte de visite portrait features a close up view of an attractive serious young woman. She is wearing earrings as well as a pin. Her hair is short and frizzy. This young lady was photographed by S. Piper. His photo studio was located at 905 Elm Street in the city of Manchester, New Hampshire. Stephen Piper (1835-1903) was a photographer in Manchester from 1866 to at least, 1887. He was born in Sanborton, New Hampshire. His obituary in the Manchester Union Leader nearly filled the entire front page of the newspaper. Even more remarkable for the time, was the fact that his picture was also on the front page. Piper was clearly considered an important citizen of Manchester, at the time of his death. The cdv has excellent clarity and is in excellent condition (see scans).

CUTE YOUNG GIRL IN NASHUA NEW HAMPSHIRE

A young girl poses for her portrait in the studio of Charles Henry Lindsay in Nashua, New Hampshire. Note her lace collar and her cute curls. She has a great half smile and is very focused on the photographer and camera. The photographer of this image had quite a journeyman career. The Granite State Monthly (1916) wrote a glowing article about his skills and described his career experiences. Lindsay learned his profession in the studio of Frank O. Everett, in Nashua. He began working for Everett around 1872 and stayed in his employ for about three years. He then moved to Concord, New Hampshire to become an operator for Benjamin Carr. He ultimately purchased Carr’s business and conducted it successfully until it was destroyed in a fire. He then worked with Stephen Piper in Manchester until 1879, when he moved to Nashua and opened his own studio. In 1889 he went to Boston and worked for some well known photographers. From 1894 until at least 1915, he operated a studio in Manchester, New Hampshire. At some point, his son, Ira Frank Lindsay, joined him in operating the Manchester studio. Lindsay’s career certainly was one that had many starts and stops, and forced him to make many relocations. This cabinet card was  produced during Lindsay’s Nashua tenure between 1879 and 1889.
